Dinosaur Jr’s gear stolen mid-tour

The band appeal for help

Dinosaur Jr have had all their gear stolen from a trailer which was parked outside their hotel in Long Island City, New York.

Following a performance at Warsaw in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday night (August 29), the band checked into the hotel, with plans to travel to New Haven the next day for a show last night (August 30).

However, when the band woke up the next morning, they discovered all their equipment had been stolen.


In an email circulated to music industry friends and colleagues, the band listed the stolen gear and appealed for help in tracking down the stolen gear, a sentiment they reiterated on their website:

‘We would appreciate spreading the word and passing this list around in hopes of recovering their gear. Please notify and alert your local guitar shops, pawn shops, music and web stores etc. to keep an eye out for this gear. Feel free to send this list to any and all band, tour and production managers, guitar freaks, touring personnel, venues, musicians and or thieves that you think could help us.’

The band is due to play Buffalo tonight (August 31).
